The motel was clean on the outside with flowers by each room. However, the room was a joke. The air conditioner unit was so dirty & dusty inside that we were afraid we'd catch some disease if we left it on overnight. Two queen beds were squeezed into the room with barely 15 inches of walking space around them. The... More

Clean and comfortable room, secured entrance. Our room was at the 2 level building at the back of the motel. However, there is no laundry service in the motel itself, there is one 2 blocks away, however it close rather early. There is actually no real breakfast, there was actually some coffee and bread you can grab and go that... More

In agreement with most of the reviews here. Pros: In a very expensive town for lodging, this is a budget accommodation that exceeds many if its ilk. Our room was clean and well maintained - no stains or cig burns or scratches on the wall or anything like that. Our room was in the 2 story annex in the back... More

This is a place that you never want to stay. The sign says clean and wifi. That is not correct. The room was dirty, the sheets were dirty and there was no wifi. If you have a look at the local court reports, the Rainbow is the center of crime in Bend. We paid USD 166.50 for a night! DO... More

If you tend to stay in Motel 6, or in other budget motels when you travel, stay here instead. It's clean, the rooms are bigger, and they provide the amenities the budget chains don't: a microwave, a mini-fridge, a coffee-maker, HBO and a hair dryer. The proprietors are helpful -- they steered us to a good Mexican restaurant -- and... More

We experienced a pleasant one night stay at Rainbow Motel. It offered everything you generally expect (clean, everything working, secure entrance etc) and both people who I interacted with in the office were very friendly. The location was good - we wandered over to Silver Moon Brewery for dinner and drinks and would definitely recommend it! We also liked all... More

The owners (I think that's who was working in the office) were most gracious. We had a room in the newer annex of the building. Beware that there is NO ELEVATOR in this hotel although it has 2 floors; that wasn't a problem for us. The room was large enough and clean. It had all we wanted and needed for... More

We stayed at this property in bend looking at the reviews on tripadvisor and booking.com and we got what we expected. A not so low cost motel in a small but vibrant town. The town of Bend in itself is small so all the eating places and breweries were just 5-10 minutes away. This helped us since we had a... More

My friends I used TA's ratings to find our hotels for our recent motorcycle ride and they are spot on. As a group of guys we were looking for inexpensive clean lodging and that's exactly what we got. Plus it was only 4 blocks from silver moon brewing. We would definitely stay here again.

First of all, I want to start off by saying that the family that owns this motel was very nice and professional. That was the only positive part of our experience at the Rainbow Motel. The reviews on Trip Advisor were generally positive, so we were very surprised when our room was extremely dingy. We brought our dog with us,... More
